Hello, the goal of the exercise is to configure the contact data source to have a few more properties available for use in ANY dialog. Step 9 in the exercise where it states "Access the configuration tools to update the dialog and confirm that your properties are available." can be done at any step in the process. If you open configuration tools on the first step and see that zipcode and contact id is available you have completed the exercise successfully. For extra credit you can modify any dialogue to now display those values.
